ENZYME entry: EC 1.7.3.1

Accepted Name
Nitroalkane oxidase.
Alternative Name(s)
NAO.
Nitroethane oxidase.
Nitroethane reductase.
Reaction catalysed
A nitroalkane + H(2)O + O(2) <=> an aldehyde or ketone + nitrite + H(2)O(2)
Cofactor(s)
FAD.
Comment(s)
  • While nitroethane may be the physiological substrate, the enzyme also acts on several other nitroalkanes, including 1-nitropropane, 2-nitropropane, 1-nitrobutane, 1-nitropentane, 1-nitrohexane, nitrocyclohexane and some nitroalkanols.
  • Differs from EC 1.13.12.16 in that the preferred substrates are neutral nitroalkanes rather than anionic nitronates.
